It's not going to work.  One of the (I believe few) things that IP uses that's not supported in CF is critical -- generating code "on the fly" using new-in-2.0 functionality.

This might be the time to tell (complain to) Microsoft that they need to provide that in CF.

If I'm not mistaken, there is a CPython implementation for Windows smartphones -- it might be runtime-only.  Good luck.
